The MIMR-PHI Institute of Medical Research has been renamed the Hudson Institute of Medical Research to honour the late Professor Bryan Hudson, a world-class physician and scientist. The MIMR-PHI Institute came about as the result of a 2014 merger between two of Melbourne’s leading Institutes combining 75 years of research experience and more than 450 leading researchers and postgraduate students.
The new name comes at a crucial stage for the Institute, as it looks to open a new, $84 million, state-of-the-art Translational Research Facility (TRF), with its Monash Health Translation Precinct (MHTP) partners, Monash Health and Monash University, in September this year.
The TRF will transform the Institute’s research capability, allowing researchers to make a far greater impact on health by driving their discoveries directly towards the clinic.
The facility will co-locate research, clinical trials and host a central floor of technology platforms including a VPTN member, the MHTP Medical Genomics Facility.
“We’re excited by the opportunities for advancement of genomic medicine that the move to the TRF will bring.” Vivien Vasic, MHTP Medical Genomics Facility Manager, Monash Health Translation Precinct, Hudson Institute of Medical Research
